I have had an '03, '05, '08 and now the 2011. The new truck runs circles around my '08. The power and MPG's are a world of difference. The new truck also has such a better interior and creature comforts. Go drive a '12, or save some $$$ and get a clean low mileage '11. Good luck.

There are other threads with the same question, the general concensus has been the 6.7's are better in stock form power, mileage, and transmission function.

Emissions deleted 08-10's are said to have identical power and economy.

Having owned a 99 7.3. an 07 6.0. an 08 6.4, the 11 6.7 reminds me of the 7.3 the most. The 6.0 was good tuned and studded, the 6.4 was good but a pig at the pump.

my .02 cents.

Stock vs/ stock, the 6.7L is a much better performer. However, if you are going to be adding extra HP, the 6.4L will run circles around the 6.7L and is much more reliable.

I had an 09 King Ranch 6.4

MY 11 Lariat 6.7 runs circles around my 6.4, smoother, quieter (I have to tell people its a diesel). I had to delete the pipe and program the 6.4 to get the acceleration and power of the 6.7

Thanks... I am only going to do cosmetic mods for now. Wanting to let it break in good before I go adding more power. Might go ahead and order a S&B CAI though, just to help out with the already great mileage.

You didn't really need any convincing from us, did you?

Congrats and enjoy the new ride!
